Mancub is the beautiful and absurd story of a boy who seems to be turning into animals. Paul faces the usual struggles of growing up. Struggles for understanding with his father, struggles to work out what girls are about. But he also faces a more pressing problem. Reality seems to be shifting as the people around him begin to display the traits of certain animals.
Stranger still are the changes he, and other people, see in himself. Does Paul really turn into animals, or does he only think he does? Mancub is a collaboration between Vanishing Point and acclaimed Scottish writer Douglas Maxwell, whose hits include Decky Does a Bronco and Helmet, both also published by Oberon.
